Men’s Health- What You Don’t Know CAN Hurt You.
Think back to some of the most important moments of your life. Your first date. Your wedding day. The birth of your child. You felt like your heart simply stopped. These are the times and memories that make life worth living- these are the things we fight to protect. Guys, ask yourself, how hard are you fighting to keep yourself healthy so you can be there with your loved ones to create more of these moments?
According to the CDC, heart disease is the leading cause of death in men in the United States. One in four male deaths is attributed to heart disease- their heart did simply stop. Another scary but sobering fact; half of the men who die from sudden coronary heart disease had no previous symptoms. Today half of American men are walking around with at least one of the key risk factors associated with heart disease: high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and smoking.
The good news is that establishing care with a regular primary care provider can help prevent this, allowing you to live a longer and healthier life so that you can be around to enjoy your family. At your annual physical, you are screened for all three of these key risk factors. You are also screened for diabetes, any pertinent cancers, and STDs if needed.
